good evening to you where ever you are. only 36 hours after that mad man burst in the sandy hook elementary school, killing 12 young girls and 8 boys and six adultings. all of the children were either 6 or 7 and the last hour, relatives of the shotter. adam lamb released a statement part of which reads the following. >> we reach out to the community of newtown and express heart felt sorrow for the profound loss of innocence that is affected so many. with me now my colleagues are going to be broadcasting here live later on tonight. we have been through tough ones and this is right near the top. >> yes. it is so wrong. nyes, my senyear old first graders and this is it so agredgous and devastating and
awful to moy. -- me. you have the shock and outrage, and also there is a feeling of disgust at this monster who would torteur these children. remember billy bursts in the room and starts killing the children. they were alive and dead and dying, and he has a long rifle and right up to the kids . he's almost the agent of the devil's apocalypse. it is raw and save annual. it is a mini holocaust. >> i thought the statements by the medical examiner were chilling that i have heard of all of the chilling stories that we heard in the past day and half. you must be of that mind set in order to endure what that
man has endured. some of kids were shot 11 times. where were they shot. he said everywhere. you start to think what could possibly have been the motive? what could have possible created the rage for you to commit that obscene violence against the children and to dress in combat gear and arm yourself with combat style weapons and thep go and not take on an enemy defending your country, but pick on the vulnerable and innocent children and children never exposed to anything evil before and never had an adult treat them with anything but love and affection. he was dressed in a costume and styling himself as a warrior against what? against children? the most vulnerable people in
our society. that deeply sickens me and everyone of those children. what could have been gone on behind those bangs and what is it in this person that he could do it to the children. we have been around and i have known you for years and this is gut wrerching. it brings you to tears. it just -- you want to vomit, it is just a terrible, terrible situation. ni mentioned earlier that so many people told me they turn on the tv and stare at it and leave it on for hours. and they sit there in tear crying over the enormous loss. and as a father, you think of your 7 year old daughter. >> you not. i look at you now. we try to maintain our composure. we are professionals and i am a war correspondant and seen
atrocity in iraq and somalia and everywhere else. look at the victims how selective he was. first graders. six years old and 7 years old. and any wonder the president was moved to tears and the nation was moved to tears and the pope, it is so unfathomable. what could have happened to this person that he would in any way feel that he was certified to commit this obacceptity. this will go down in history to be a day that will live in infamy and the make of a beautiful new england commun a place of horror and fear for these children? i can't, i can't, i swear, it is the nation's nightmare, bill, to think of the lives they led from the moment he burst in their classroom and ended their lives. what could those children have
been thinking. you think about that and you want to take his remains and throw them to the winds and so ther not there. so evil. nthis happened in southerp russia. and this happened in norway in the island a year ago, and now happened here and we have had school shootings before, but never hitting a 6 year old child 11 times with a rifle. nlook at how columbine scarred us and changed the way schools are guard run and those with teenagers and god help us it was horrible. now take it down to first graders. i ran up town to see my daughter. picture the little children in the little outfits and their lunches and what are they thinking about. there a are thinking about
play dates and legos and dolls and christmas. >> they are thinking about christmas and stanta clause and he was going to be here in 10 days. >> imagine, what will christmas be in newtown, connecticut will it always be this memory? it is difficult to report in a sober, somber way because it is it so emotion. it is difficult not to be impressioned and obviously over come with groveand sorrow. >> we'll see you tonight. >> hang tough. >> you, too. n10 o'clock. >> yes. see you then. >> much more tonight from newtown, connecticut. 10 o'clock eastern time with a special edition of geraldo at large. >> thank you, my friend. >> as the nation tries to
figure this out and parents try to make a connection to what happened here and you consider the innocent lives lost in newtown. many aring and thinking of those who survived. they are kindergartens who just lived through that no one should see. how do they cope. dr. mark seigle is with me. member of the fox's medical a teem. there is it a symptom called ptfd does something like that apply to a five year old child? it is run because of the wars and applies to children, and statistics are shocking. 77 percent of the kids in this school are going to suffer from these symptoms and 35 percent of the kids in the
neighborhood not even at the school. we are talking about disruptions and feeling alone and inability to trust anyone and reliving thes in reverse order and anticipating the next time it is going to happen. it takes weeks and months for kids to recover from this. lucky psychotherapy helps . they have to get these kids in therapy. ni want to talk a little bit about that, doctor. but you don't know how kids react over time. especially when you are this young. i talked to a woman, her six yore old daughter is okay. and her mother was talking for hours and finally the daughter said to the mom, are you going to be okay? i know our focus is on the young children.
